Waiting...

Ask anyone who has adopted or been in the process, and they will tell you that waiting is one of the hardest parts. Our wait has been relatively short compared to some, but even so- we are longing to hold our baby girl soon. It is harder for me than Randy and the boys, but now we are all at the point of being ready for her to join our family-like NOW! This week has been a turning point for me though and I am no longer going to try and "predict" when she will come home, but rather enjoy each day to the fullest that I can and trust that the Lord will bring our girl home in His perfect timing!
This video I made kind of sums up this past year while we've been waiting for our Little Elliana.

What a great video! The pains in your heart and soul while waiting for my babies to come home are unlike any other longing I have ever experienced. But, when you hold your sweet girl in your arms all of the longing and waiting will be so worth it. You are SO close! God's peace to you and your family!

Beautiful video! I agree, waiting is the hardest. I have always heard that this part was the hardest but didn't realize just how difficult it would be. I've been going CRAZY this week with our wait!!! :) Hopefully we'll both get our TC VERY soon so we can get our precious girls HOME!! Praying for you! Keep trusting in Jesus.....He knows exactly when they'll be home, what a comfort that is. :)

OH I feel your pain. I know this is the hardest part of it all..it really is. But I feel like you are in the perfect place now for that call to come. You have stopped perdicting, and you have completly given it to God. I had to go through the same things...and that is when the call came. I can just feel that you will be getting your call very soon. Hang onto God, this is what he wants. Our baby girls are only 2 weeks apart in age. How sweet! Her big brothers will spoil her so much. Hang in there my friend....soooo soon this will all be a distant memory! PROMISE :-)
